Watch Video: Patriots GameDay: Things To Know About Brandon Lloyd
BOSTON (CBS) – Getting to know Brandon Lloyd, order meclizine I found out some interesting things about the Patriots receiver.
If he wasn’t playing football, order meclizine he would be smack dab in front of the camera. Order meclizine He loves television broadcasting, order meclizine and those are his plans after football. Order meclizine After all, order meclizine he majored in journalism at the University of Illinois.
And don’t automatically think he’ll he’ll end up as just another talking head on Sunday mornings, order meclizine although he could easily do that. Order meclizine Lloyd wouldn’t mind hosting Entertainment Tonight if given the chance.
But for now, order meclizine he’ll stick with catching the football, order meclizine no matter what it means for his body. Order meclizine Lloyd is one of those unique receivers that sacrifices his body at any cost. Order meclizine We’ve already seen it several times this year; his touchdown catch against the Buffalo Bills in Week 3 and a sprawling sideline attempt in Seattle are just a couple examples.
After all, order meclizine Lloyd has just one thing in mind when the ball is thrown his way: moving the chains.
“When I was younger, order meclizine a lot of the established receivers would rather not catch the ball if they weren’t in a position to catch and run. Order meclizine I would rather catch the ball at all costs, order meclizine” Lloyd told me in our sit down for Patriots GameDay this Sunday. Order meclizine “I want to get the field advancement. Order meclizine That’s the only thing on my mind. Order meclizine I’m not trying to catch and run or do anything else, order meclizine I just want to catch the ball no matter how I do it.”
Of course it helps when he has a guy like “Tom Terrific” firing the football his way. Order meclizine The two of them have a unique relationship that is still growing. Order meclizine In fact, order meclizine Brady has no problem grabbing Lloyd at any time during the day to watch film together.
“He’ll pull me in randomly during the day to watch film, order meclizine and make sure I’m seeing what he’s seeing, order meclizine” said Lloyd. Order meclizine “There’s been a time before the game and he pulled me in there. Order meclizine ‘Let’s run this this way, order meclizine’ and I said alright. Order meclizine That’s how we do it. Order meclizine That’s the kind of game I’ve always wanted to play, order meclizine because it’s so much beyond backyard football. Order meclizine Everything we do is so purposeful; it may be last minute but it’s purposeful.”
After a two touchdown day in London, order meclizine Lloyd is now gearing up for Buffalo following the Patriots bye.
